So as I mentioned I've started some new work. Its a little slow going at the moment but I'm resigned to the fact and besides I can't. Not. Paint, its a physical impossibility. Honestly I've tried it. Between you and me I can tell you it did not go well! So I'm stubbornly plodding on for the moment until I can paint freely again. I do hope you'll bare with me. I'd be very pleased to have you along for the ride.
Anyway here's another I've started. I'm rather pleased with these pieces. They feel like a good start. I'm hoping to make some very large paintings when time permits and I feel like these are the beginning of this bigger work. This doesn't make them any less important to me or in the whole grand scale of things I expect. But I thought I should mention it so we're all on the same page so to speak ;)
I've been reading as much as possible lately and happened upon Faust by Johann Wolfgan Von Goethe, accidentally. I was struggling to find any inspiration at the time. This is a work in progress, which I'm enjoying more than usual as I'm finding the process pretty cathartic. There's still quite a way to go with this piece but here's where I've gotten to so far.
